talk will also include detailed technical discussions
about the Aspect-Oriented Programming (AOP) framework
and the role the Microkernel plays within the JBoss

logging examples to cover all standard reusable aspect
technologies present in JBoss such as persistence,
caching, invocations, transactions, and acidity.

leaders in open source Java software.

Speaker Bio:

Marc Fleury is currently the founder and president
of JBoss Inc, the industry's largest open source Java
software provider. Based in Atlanta, JBoss Inc.
has instituted the Professional Open Source model
whereby open source Java products are
supported by the actual core development teams.  A
graduate of France's Ecole Polytechnique, and an
ex-Lieutenant in the French paratroopers, Marc received
a Masters in Theoretical Physics from the Ecole
Nationale Superieure rue d'Ulm and a PhD in Physics
from Ecole Polytechnique for experimental work he did
as a visiting scientist at MIT's Research Lab of
Electronics.  Marc began his professional career at
Sun Microsystems France in sales before transitioning
to engineering, where he worked in SAP development
for Sun in Silicon Valley.  Shortly after leaving
Sun to work as an independent software contractor,
Marc started the JBoss open source Java Application
Server project.

Gavin King is the founder and lead developer of the
Hibernate project, an open source Object/Relational
Mapping and Transparent Object Persistence product.
Gavin was born in Australia and still resides in
Melbourne.  Gavin studied mathematics at the Monash
University before deciding to make the leap into
open source software. He currently works on Hibernate
and a new Hibernate-based CMP engine for JBoss Inc.,
the Professional Open Source company and supplier
of technical support services for a suite of Open
Source Java products.  Gavin has recently co-authored
a forthcoming book titled Hibernate in Action that
will be published by Manning.  He is also an active
participant in the JDO expert group.
